For two computers, power problems might not be much of an issue. I mean, mostly like they are both situated in opposite ends of the house. The problem arises as you add more computers to the mix. If you start running short on space and have two computers plugged into the same outlet you could have major shortage problems. Unfortunately, a power strip doesn't help because you'd just keep adding more equipment to the same outlet. The best thing to do is to keep computers separate. You can do this by either adding an extra electrical outlet or moving the computer to another room. However, if you already have everything set up this way, you should make sure your power strip has a surge protector so you won't sizzle everything in the house if something does happen.
